Description Axel Braun 2010-02-11 14:56:27 UTC
Version:           4.4 (using 4.4.00 (KDE 4.4.0) "release 222", KDE:KDE4:Factory:Desktop / openSUSE_11.1)
Compiler:          gcc
OS:                Linux (i686) release

Just upgraded from KDE 4.3.4 to 4.4.0 and noticed that all my mailing lists from Kaddressbook are gone!
Is there a way to get them back?

I wrote this awk script to extract the list that links id-numbers with email
(First export the old addressbook as addressbook.vcf and 
 run 'dos2unix addressbook.vcf' on it)

It should be relatively simple to use this as a substitution table
in the distribution list entries.

awk '
# Records are separated by blank lines.
# Each line is one field.
# first run dos2unix on addressbook.vcf
BEGIN { RS = "" ; FS="\n" }
	n=split($0,x,"\n"); # array x[i]
	for (i = 1;  i<= NF ; i++){
		if (x[i] ~ /EMAIL/) e=x[i]		 
		if (x[i] ~ /UID/) u=x[i]
	print ee[2]," ", uu[2]

And even if this bug is solved, lists won't work in kde4.4....

...which is exactly the case, as I've found out to my cost since Mandriva 2010.1 "upgraded" KDE to 4.4.3.

In fact it took a lot of digging around to even find out how to get even my contacts list into kaddressbook (import the ~/.kde4/share/apps/kabc/std.vcf into it), which was totally empty and virtually non-functional.

Is kaddressbook being replaced with something that actually WORKS, or are the developers trying to encourage us to use Gnome instead? I really can't understand why a perfectly functional program has been replaced by one that doesn't work.

This bug has only been reported for versions older than KDEPIM 4.14 (at most akonadi-1.3). Can anyone tell if this bug still present?

If noone confirms this bug for a recent version of akonadi (part of KDE Applications 15.08 or later), it gets closed in about three months.
